Ed Yong – I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life

Every human being contains a good pound or two worth of microbes, and we could not live without them. Yong gives a good popular-level account of who these little guys are, what they do, and shares plenty of insights about symbiosis, evolution, and more, while puncturing a few common myths about health and microbes. It’s a good way to see the world a little differently, and hopefully dispels the common notion that all bacteria are bad.
